The Myth Of Social Justice In America
The phrase “social justice” has been bandied about recently by Obama and the Democrats in Congress who think this phrase is a trump card over rationality and believe it is some magical key to over-ruling the Constitution.
In looking at this seemingly innocuous phrase, it is clear that the roots of its’ meaning are conclusively tied to two movements: Marxism/Progressivism/Socialism and the Liberation Theology of Christianity.
Upon closer examination of the Marxist-Progressive-Socialist movement, we discover that the “social justice” ideology requires government to guarantee outcomes rather than protect every citizens right to the opportunity to better themselves economically, socially and politically. This means, everyone achieves the same life and the same economic results so that social justice (experience-wise) is achieved for all people, which means that the differences in a utopian homogenious society are minimal for the most part.
This is straight from the Communist Manefesto – progressive Democrats and RINO’s subscribe to this sort of thinking.
In practical terms, as evidenced by Russia and other socialist nations the true outcome of such a scheme is that there is a political class and then everyone else who are subject to that political class. We are dangerously close to this already.
I thought the idea of America was to prevent our citizenry from being subjects (serfs, slaves etc) to anyone so that we could live free, choose to work hard and find success on our own terms and do what we wish with our lives, our wealth & property. I thought individualism in America was a key value, with no requirement that anyone conform to cultural morays in appearance, achievement, dreams and the end results. I thought America valued independence and having everyone be unique in abilities, desires and outcomes – a key element which has made America so strong in the past.
These aforementioned values and the shared history and legacy of the Declaration of Independence, our Constitution including the manner of and reasons for our founding were once things that unified this previously-great nation into a diverse yet single People.
Under the Democrat heel of legislative tyranny and “we know better than you do” progressive ideologies of our Demothug Rulers, group/identity politics and a host of other devisive political activities of the Leftist Demothugs are tearing this nation apart, culturally and economically.
Nowhere in our Constitution is our central government given the power to carry out social justice, let alone require people to purchase a service or product as a consequence of citizenship. The Democrats have ignored the public and they have ignored the Constitution, and I am at a loss as to how they can think this behavior (selling votes, horse trading, secret deal-making and etc) is honorable and protects the Constitution they swore to defend.
Social justice falls within the realm of Churches and social groups, not the federal government or their bureaucratic lackeys.
If you want social justice for yourself or others, stop expecting the Feds to do this unconstitutional act for you. Instead, go out and do it yourself and keep your laws off my choices, my property, my opportunities and my career. Social justice is something the Federal Govt was never mandated to deal with, and wisely was kept from doing so for many many years until progressives came on the scene starting with education and then spreading their vile marxist values into other public arenas.
Government-instituted social justice is not just at all. The losers are clear: freedom, autonomy, individuality, choice, economic opportunity, creativity, entrepreneurial spirit and social unity because such government-instituted “justice” requires theft from those that have in order to give to those that have little.
I am stunned at the number of Christians who believe government should be carrying out social justice. Apparently, they dont realize that they are mixing theological understandings in with Marxist-Progressive-Socialist ideals to come up with a world view that paves the way for Government Tyranny. Personally, I think such a theological view leads to a surrendering of each Believer’s responsibility to enact social justice in their own spheres of influence. In short, I see this as a cop-out and an abandonment of that responsibility as a very personal level.
See you on the battlefield.
